I recently had maintenance done on my car at a new repair shop,
replacing the alternator and water pump. The interior of the car was a
bit of mess when I brought it in, the detritus of two young kids
littering the floor and the back seat. You can image my shock when I got
the car back and it was spotless—the shop had completely vacuumed the
interior, leaving it in better shape than I gave it to them. When I
checked under the hood, I found that they did the same there, cleaning
up the dirt and stains that inevitably occur.

Back in my 20’s, I was a Budweiser drinker. It was affordable, light,
and I liked it. As I’ve gotten older and begun to appreciate having a
beer for the taste, I’ve matured and been ordering more IPAs, craft
beers, and imports. My tastes have changed and my product selection has
changed along with it. Plenty of my friends have stayed with Bud or
other American lagers. There’s nothing wrong with that, and I don’t
begrudge them anything.

We’ve all heard the scatological phrase about doing ones “business” or
getting off “the pot.” We’ve all been there. Should you try to get a few
more years out of your truck or buy a new one? And, when we started our
own businesses, we needed to make that leap into the great unknown of
business ownership, suddenly responsible for sales, marketing, customer
service, accounting, payroll, human resources, etc.
